“PlayStation Isn’t About Trends,” Beyond Isn’t the “Kind of Game That Other Publishers Would Risk”

Though perhaps not as well known as Shuhei Yoshida, Kaz Hirai, or Adam Boyes at this moment, Scott Rohde, PlayStation Software Product Development Head for Sony Worldwide Studios America, was on the PlayStation LiveCast just now as part of the Mornings With Meredith segment. - PSLS

So glad they took a chance on Beyond.

And that is precisely why I will buy it. I have been gaming since the 1970s and I need devs to take risks.

Axonometri1142d ago

...and successful or not, this is one of the reasons why Sony has become a fire in the industry.

Destrania1142d ago

Sony believes in their developers. That's why we always get the most and the most unique and creative 1st/2nd party games. Sony lets developers do what they truly want to do, and the results from that trust bring the most incredible/spectacular gaming experiences.

Pintheshadows1142d ago

You just need to watch all the E3 interviews with Sony developers to see how easy that Sony makes it for them to create their visions. Sony is not overbearing in the least and from a creative standpoint that is brilliant.

lucaskeller11142d ago

Yes I do see trends, trends in the playstation platform offering unique games which take risks like heavy rain, littlebigplanet, the last of us etc

ZombieGamerMan1142d ago (Edited 1142d ago )

Honestly the fact The Last of Us exists and is funded by Sony shows how big of a risk taker they are.

Everyone knows this generation Sony's number 1 studio has been Naughty Dog with their Uncharted series being both one the highest rated & commercially successful PS3 title. So for them to let Naughty Dog go and make a brand new IP instead of an Uncharted 4 which have would been a guarantee sell shows they are willing to take risks.

MS on the other hand can't go 1 press conference without Halo.

EDIT: @ lucaskeller1 Yeah and now it is up to us gamers to make The Last of Us another major seller for Sony and with that hopefully we can see more games like The Last of Us.

Fellow PS3 brethren where will you be Jun 14 when Naughty Dog's magnum opus and a game that will define our generation of games comes out? I know where I'll be.... home playing The Last of Us. Live in your world, Play in ours!

lucaskeller11142d ago

I agree, naughty dog are amazing they turned uncharted into a system seller in one generation, it is up there on ps3s most sold games with gt4

fardan851142d ago

There's something worth mentioning here, Naughty Dog didn't decide by themselves to make new IP, if my memory didn't betray me, I recall reading a news that Sony asked ND to make a new IP to rival UC, and asked them to make a 2nd team. As a result, we got TLOS.

I'm buying my dad a copy for fathers day as well. He is welcome.

I'll be at work.:( Took off monday to watch the conferences. Hopefully I'll get off in time to go pick up my post-pandemic edition from GameStop though.:)

Although, they may be having a midnight release...might have to call them.

Come release day we need to go out and purchase this game to support and follow the trend of Sony taking risks. Journey, Heavy Rain, Little big planet are great examples on how they pay off in the long run. God I love sony lol

Destrania1142d ago

Finally get to play The Last of Us tonight at midnight! Can't wait for Beyond: Two Souls and GT6. Puppeteer looks really awesome as well. PS3 is definitely hitting hard this year, it's fantastic.

Pintheshadows1142d ago

I like the look of Rain. I do like a serene experience every now and then to balance out the epic games we get a lot of the time. Flower, Journey, Pixeljunk Eden are just a few.
